The Black Hole

When the stars are extinguished, (Qur'an, 77:8)

John Wheeler, an American physicist was first used the term “black hole” in 1969. Light cannot escape from a black hole because it is such a high concentration of mass in a small space. The huge gravitation captures even the fastest particles.

[I swear] by Heaven and the Tariq! And what will convey to you what the Tariq is? The Star Piercing [the darkness]! (Qur'an, 86:1-3)

Black holes, however, do not only cause warps in space but also tear holes in it. That is why these collapsed stars are known as black holes. This fact may be mentioned in the verse regarding stars, and this is another important element of information illustrative that the Qur'an is the Word of Allah.
